Lovely lunch!

We visited The Old Butchers for lunch after a stroll around Stow-on-the-Wold. Not too busy but a good steady stream of people, so a good atmosphere. We had the crouque madame and crab club sandwiches, both very tasty and came with crispy skin-on chips as well, yummy! Service was quick as well... read more

In many ways, this restaurant belongs in a busy, modern city, more than Stow. It’s a refreshing change from many of the “overblown” gastro-pubs in the surrounding Cotswolds. They have recently restyled both the menu and the room to encourage a more flexible approach to lunching and dining. You are just as welcome to drop in for a glass of... More

Went to Stow for a summer day trip and lunch. Fell upon the Old Butchers as it's close to the car park. Have to say what a find. The food and service are brilliant, attentive staff without being over your shoulder all the time. The menu on the day we visited was varied and interesting. We had duck rillettes and... More

Our attention was caught by the Old Butcher with the intriguing addition of lobster on the menu! Not somthing you get on every Sunday lunch menu so thought we would drop in. The restaurant has a bistro feel but with an English feel. The walls are decorated with interesting art and the chairs are high back and leather making them... More

We had dinner here a few days ago with family from Denmark. It is a very friendly restaurant , relaxed and buzzy atmosphere. Great service and great food with a good varied choice on the menu. Would definitely eat here again and it is ashamed we live so far away.

Located right next to our B&B, perfect for us as we didn't want to go any further after almost a whole day of driving. We didn't have a reservation but we were nicely greeted by the staff. We were able to sit outside where it was more private and quieter for us. We did not want a big meal either... More

A casual visit to Stow-on-the-Wold - we happened upon this restaurant and booked for 6:30. The restaurant is clearly very popular, all covers were taken (this was a Monday evening). Serving staff were all lovely and very efficient, without the feeling of being rushed. We ordered the sharing mixed platter, which was generous. My wife is a fan of lobster,... More

Great menu & amazing choice of wines including some very grand reds ... If only I wasn't driving! Had a lovely meal here with my wife. Great food. Lovely atmosphere. Really nice feel to this place - friendly, welcoming & seeking to please. Would heartily recommend.
